Semi Final Draw
1 January 2010, 5:33 pm
If Munster beat Northampton in the April Heineken Cup quarter final at Thomond Park Stadium they will then have to travel away for a semi-final clash with either Biarritz or Ospreys.
2010 Heineken Cup Semi Finals.

Toulouse or Stade Francais versus Leinster or Clermont Auvergne. (neutral venue in France)

Biarritz Olympique or Ospreys versus Munster or Northampton Saints (neutral venue in France or Wales)

The draw, conducted this evening in Paris by ERC Chairman Jean-Pierre Lux and Emile N'Tamack heavily favoured the French clubs who are certain of at least one home semi-finalist with Toulouse to have home country advantage when Stade Francias visit in April fo the quarter final. If Toulouse, who earlier in the day defeated Sale Sharks, win that one as they will be expected, they'll face the winner of the Leinster versus Clermont Auvergne game.

Biarritz had to come from behind today at their Stade Aguilera before shaking off a tenacious Glasgow Warriors challenge and certainly on the evidence of the first hour, Ospreys will fancy their chances. That game will likely be played in San Sebastien.
